Five players to look out for on the 2023 DP World Tour

It was another thrilling season on the DP World Tour but the focus is already turning towards the 2023 campaign and which five players to look out for.

Spaniard Jon Rahm managed to clinch the DP World Tour Championship on Sunday, holding off England's Tyrrell Hatton and Sweden's Alex Noren by two shots, while Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy was crowned Race to Dubai winner the fourth time.

With Ryder Cup 2023 taking place in Italy, there are several players who will be dreaming of making the team and that need for qualification points could make for an exciting 2023 season.

Ahead of the new campaign, we have picked out five players to keep an eye out for.

Guido Migliozzi

As mentioned before, the Ryder Cup takes place next year and Marco Simone Golf Club in Italy will be the host venue, as 15/8 Europe look to win the trophy back from 8/15 the USA.

Home favourite Guido Migliozzi will be desperate to be part of the event in his own backyard and there were signs during the 2022 season that he is getting back to his best.

The 25-year-old won his third DP World Tour title at the Open de France in September, which took place at a former Ryder Cup course, Le Golf National, and the way he handled himself on the final day was very pleasing to see.

A strong start to the year would do Migliozzi, who is 200/1 to win the 2023 US Masters, the world of good and he is definitely someone to keep an eye out for.

Hurly Long

Germany have some good players coming through the ranks right now, but one of the best looks to be Hurly Long and it only seems like a matter of time before he gets on the winning trail.

The 27-year-old had four top-five and eight top-10 finishes on the DP World Tour in the 2022 season and, if he keeps on improving his game, there is no question he will enter the winners' circle for the first time.

Long wields the putter well - he was 25th in putts per GIR in the 2022 season - while his sharp iron play also make for great watching.

If he can tighten up off the tee and find more fairways on a consistent basis, then the German should continue his rise and earn more recognition.

Seamus Power

Ireland's Seamus Power has taken his game to the next level over the past couple of years and he landed his second PGA Tour title in October, winning the Bermuda Championship by one stroke.

Although playing most of his golf on the PGA Tour, the 35-year-old is likely to be seen more on the DP World Tour with the Ryder Cup taking place in Italy next year.

Power will be hoping to automatically qualify for the event, but if he fails to do so, ensuring he makes an impression on captain Luke Donald will be his next port of call.

The County Waterford-born star will be hoping to continue his progression over the next 12 months and make his Ryder Cup debut at Marco Simone GC.

Matt Wallace

It has been a tough couple of years for Englishman Matt Wallace, who claimed the last of his four DP World Tour titles at the 2018 Made on Denmark.

The 32-year-old was even talked about as a potential replacement for Ian Poulter when it came to the Ryder Cup, given his fiery and determined nature on the course.

Although still searching for the form that had him at a career-best ranking of 23rd in the world, Wallace also has the carrot of trying to make the Ryder Cup team for the first time.

It will take a good season for the Englishman to achieve this feat, but he is worth keeping an eye on and potentially making some bigger moves this side of the pond.

Simon Forsstrom

It is always interesting to see which players managed to secure their DP World Tour cards at Qualifying School and this year was no different, with Simon Forsstrom a name to look out for.

The Swede secured a two-stroke victory at the Final Stage of Qualifying School to become one of 28 players to earn cards.

At 33 years of age, the one-time Challenge Tour winner is no spring chicken, but there are still plenty of years left in the tank and he be relishing this test at the top tier.

Forsstrom may not be a player to think about in terms of Ryder Cup potential, as there are several players ahead of him in the pecking order, but he is somebody that could make an impact and challenge for a maiden DP World Tour title.
